next MakeMaker is DOOMED! Slide #14

Example: Writing META.yml

'make metafile' produces a simple YAML file with some information about the module

    #XXXXXXX This is a prototype!!!  It will change in the future!!! XXXXX#
    name:         ExtUtils-MakeMaker
    version:      6.21_03
    version_from: lib/ExtUtils/
    installdirs:  perl
        DirHandle:                     0
        File::Basename:                0
        File::Spec:                    0.8
        Pod::Man:                      0
    distribution_type: module
    generated_by: ExtUtils::MakeMaker version 6.21_03

In Perl this would be trivial.
